FROM SUBMITTED REPORTS

Texas State University police have recovered a suspicious backpack and are questioning a person of interest following an evacuation of the Undergraduate Academic Center on campus Thursday, Nov. 20.

The man being interviewed by police is not a Texas State student, university spokesperson Jayme Blaschke said. A second individual was questioned and released.

The evacuation was prompted around 2:10 p.m. after a woman reported seeing an individual with a gun to University Police. The Undergraduate Academic Center reopened before 3 p.m.

Police have not found a gun and say there is no active threat to students and faculty.
